Onboarding and verification
Stripe provides pre-built, conversion-optimized UIs and optimized payments compliance plans to onboard users.
For software platforms
Standard accounts are best for software platforms that want to help their users directly accept payments. Stripe will onboard your accounts in a co-branded flow that’s customized with your brand and colors.
Express accounts are best for marketplaces that want to pay out sellers and service providers. They provide more flexibility on payout timing and pricing. Stripe will onboard your accounts in a co-branded flow that’s customized with your brand and colors.
Custom accounts give you the most flexibility but require significant engineering resources to integrate. You can build your own flows or save development time and ongoing maintenance by using Stripe’s co-branded onboarding flows, customized with your brand and colors.
